Shelf life of JPSS is said to be 40 - 80 years, so go ahead and print with it!

Neil, out of curiosity, where did you get that information?
proworlded . do you have a answer ? i also have plastisol transfer i bought from proworld that are about 1 year old , they are all ok to print right ? jpss and plastisol ?
I do not believe that the manufacturer has provided a definitive 'shelf life' for the paper since there would be so many factors, such as heat, humidity, etc. I would think that if the paper is stored in a sealed plastic bag or container in a normal environment it should still be effective after a year.
Ed and Eddie,

I remember reading somewhere that the transfers were good for the life of the paper. At least with the inkjet JPSS. In other words, if you have a transfer in your hands and it looks OK, then it's OK to print. I think the 40 - 80 years was a general reference to when the paper may fall apart due to environmental conditions. I have transfers I printed back in 2008 and still use them with no problem whatsoever. Plastisol transfers may be a different story. -Neil
That could be true. I just don't like to go out on a limb and give a specific time frame.
You're probably right, but it's just a couple transfers... if you test one and it doesn't work, you're only out a tee. Someone gave me a bin full of old plastisol transfers from the 70's/80's. I'll have to try a couple and see if they're still good. Cheers, -Neil
